The Head of Bashkortostan Radiy Khabirov met with Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Islamic Republic of Iran to the Russian Federation Kazem Jalali. Head of Kalmykia Batu Khasikov also took part in the conversation. The parties discussed issues of expanding cooperation and implementing joint projects, including the creation of a transport and logistics hub on the Caspian Sea with the participation of Kalmykia.
“On April 21, in Moscow, we met with you and the Vice President for Science and Technology of Iran, Mr. Sattari,” Radiy Khabirov said. “Russian regions are very interested in scientific, technical, trade, and economic cooperation with Iran. We plan to send our business mission to Tehran next autumn. I think it is a wonderful time to be friends, to develop bilateral relations for the benefit of the people of Russia and Iran.”
The Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Islamic Republic of Iran thanked the leadership of Bashkortostan for organizing the meeting.
“We visit the regions of Russia, we were in Kalmykia, we hold regular meetings in Moscow. Here, in Bashkortostan, we see goodwill, cordiality, and hospitality,” Kazem Jalali said. “Relations between Russia and Iran are entering a new phase in the development and growth of trade. Today and tomorrow our delegation will visit several agro-industrial and woodworking enterprises of Bashkortostan. I am sure that the potential of trade relations with your republic is far from being exhausted, and our meeting will become an incentive for the successful development of bilateral ties.”
